AndBuddy Gives Android Developers Easy Method to Upload Files for Distribution
Anyone who has spent much time at all in the Android dev community knows how often file upload s services like Megaupload and Rapidshare are used to distribute cracks and ROMs. While these sites are perfectly functional, users have to share bandwidth with people downloading various videos, music, and hacks of all kinds. Enter AndBuddy: A file upload service aimed specifically at giving Android developers a place to upload and share their ROMs and kernels. With a 100MB pipe and space reserved exclusively for Android developers, this looks like a cleaner, faster way to upload and download files that are of interest to the Android community at large. Giving developers one-click access to their files, it also allows them to share the link with the community. The service is currently is a closed beta, so you’ll have to hit the link on the front page to apply for registration, but the idea behind the site is sound, and if the beta is successful this could provide a streamlined pipe for our favorite Android developers. And of course, an Android app will be available soon. Developers can register via the main page, and anyone interested in more information should visit the site, hit the FAQ, or drop the AndBuddy team an email. And feel free to leave comments here and let us know what you think of this service!
